Mission Statement

GiGi’s Playhouse is all about achievement, belief and confidence. Serving children and adults of all ages, Playhouses across the country offer 30 educational and therapeutic programs at no charge to families. All programs aim to maximize self-confidence and empower individuals to achieve their greatest potential. Our literacy program alone teaches thousands of kids with Down syndrome to read every year!

Description

Programs at GiGi’s Playhouse offer foundational learning opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community.

Goals for each GiGi’s Playhouse Program:
  • Create opportunities for parent networking and support to face the diagnosis
  • Instill high expectations for the child to follow program routines and to fully participate in planned activities
  • Offer programming tailored for individuals with Down syndrome, to include structured routines, purposeful activity planning and an (engaging/fun/creative) environment for learning
  • Provide specific, therapeutic or educational learning opportunities to support development of speech-language, social, and motor skills
